Charity, II. Love by C.S. Lewis Doodle (BBC Talk 16a, Mere Christianity, Bk 3, Chapter 9)

Description: Good and evil both increase at compound interest. This is why the little decisions you and I make every day are of such infinite importance. The smallest good act today is the capture of a strategic point from which, a few months later, you may be able to go on to victories you never dreamed of. An apparently trivial indulgence in lust or anger today is the loss of a ridge or railway line or bridgehead from which the enemy may launch an attack otherwise impossible.

Lewis wrote a broadcast on Charity which never made it to radio in full – here is the missing section in doodle form. C.S. Lewis wrote a broadcast on Charity for 15 minutes, but the BBC cut his segment to ten minutes, so he could only cover that part of Charity which deals with ‘forgiveness’. Nevertheless, the radio talks ended up being printed & expanded to include his original broadcast notes, & the subject of Charity now became two separate chapters in the book ‘Mere Christianity’ – ‘Forgiveness’ & ‘Charity’.
